Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 bedroom, 3/4 bathroom, Sleeps 3

Our circa 1920 Red Casita has been fully re-modeled for your home-away-from-home comfort. Nestled in the back yard of one of California Heights’ oldest Craftsman houses, the Red Casita is close to freeways and transportation, but part of a beautiful neighborhood with tree-lined streets and historic homes. California Heights was awarded the First and Grand Prizes of Neighborhoods USA's (NUSA) 2012 National Conference, and was featured in Sunset Magazine’s “10 Most Desirable Neighborhoods” write-up in 2004. It is conveniently located between Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Head to the beach for a day in the sun, to Naples Island for a gondola ride, to one of several theme parks, or simply out your front door to enjoy lounging on one of two brick patios. The possibilities are endless.

The Red Casita is a studio apartment which features a queen size bed, twin sleeper sofa, 40” flat screen TV with Verizon Fios, DVD player, WiFi, Ethernet, a portable air conditioning unit and access to a brick patio with BBQ. Efficiency kitchen features microwave/convection oven, toaster, electric skillet, coffee maker, refrigerator, and all cooking/dining necessities.

Great place, great price, great people

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautiful and perfect for our family of 3! The area was exactly what we were looking for and the parking was never an issue. The hosts are friendly and available to help with any questions. They have a yard area as well. We plan to always try to book this place when we visit, as we come to Long Beach at least once a year.

Loved this property

  • 5 of 5

This property was just amazing - well put together, organized and clean. It looked just like the pictures that are shown (or even better in person)

Esther was very responsive and helpful. One of the most wonderful hosts that I had a chance to work with!

cozy get away spot

  • 5 of 5

Great spot to stay for a visit to Long Beach, CA. Location is near to stores and restaurants (walking distance) and easy access to bus service (one block) to get downtown. Casita is clean, well equipped (tho no stove if you are a cook) and comfortable for two. A third person could sleep on the pull out chair but for me, it would be tight with three. Definitely recommend and would stay there again!

cozy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

A cute, cozy, clean place to stay in Long Beach. Quiet neighborhood and close to stores, restaurants and bus service should you want to go downtown. The casita has everything you need (but no stove if you want to really cook.) It's great for two people. Tho there is a pull out for a third, it would feel a little crowded in my opinion. I'd definitely stay here again.
